The Story of NailedAF🎉
NailedAF the double entendre 😍Are your nails #nailedaf and of course my initials -Analuisa Franklin! lol Cute right?!
I am a Las Vegas Resident and when I left my life of bartending and cocktail waitressing I was skeptical but wanted a change of pace. Even though the money was great, the nights were long and I was always working and was never able to spend time with my family. I thought what could I do to make great money and make my own schedule to where I can see my family more and have time for more things I love to do. I loved working in customer service and I loved art. Soo...I enrolled in Nail School. Academy of Hair Design, Las Vegas Nevada was where I attended during the day before work for the next 600 hours. Fast forward I graduated the day after Christmas 2019 and earned my license. I found a new passion and was excited to start taking clients and living and breathing nails.
I learned so much and had a handful of amazing clients! I loved what I did but more importantly I got to spend time with my little family and friends! I took on a business venture with my best friend April Ryan (Red Iguana CEO), which many of you know as NAILBOXY, the nail subscription box. I learned so much about running an online business and I loved everything about it! You probably know what happened next....
Pandemic hit 😢 as crazy life changed for us all. This was probably the most amazing transformation period of my life. Nailboxy was doing amazing and I no longer took clients. I found a new passion and it was running my own business.
I started building the foundation for NailedAF summer of 2020. Due to quarantine, I definitely had all the time in the world! After all my experience with Nailboxy and working for Red Iguana (which I still do), the long nights, the designing of packaging and all the product testing....NAILEDAF was born!
